* The Monarch of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' is once shown telling an anecdote about when Captain Sunshine, a superhero, had a gun to his face, but the Monarch noticed he didn't touch the safety. The Monarch then claimed he was ImmuneToBullets, and when the gun didn't do anything, the Captain Sunshine ran away and has thought he was invulnerable ever since.

** Naked Snake does this to Ocelot twice in ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}''; the first time, his Makarov jams because he's tried to load it improperly[[note]]He pulled the slide back to ensure there was a fresh round in the chamber before pulling the trigger; he was trying to copy a move he had heard of to show off, but let go of the slide too soon and ended up catching the previous round in the ejection port[[/note]], and the second time, because he's used to the Makarov's eight-round magazine, he doesn't realize that his new [[RevolversAreJustBetter Single Action Army]] [[ItWorksBetterWithBullets runs out after six shots]].

* Another variation occurs in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. Bender attempts to shoot the Professor, but finds that he physically can't because his programming prevents this. So he switches on his recently installed Free Will Unit to override the program...only to find that he still can't shoot the Professor. Aw, it looks as though Bender has a conscience after all, and can't bring himself to - Oh, no, wait, it was just because the safety was on. BANG.

Constance: You might find that difficult, Mr Malpense, especially with the safety catch still on.
Otto: What do you think this is, amateur hour? [fires a shot at the ground]
